Question about NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router

1 Answer

I have a Windows 7 Lenovo T510 laptop which has a wireless port. I have used wireless successfully on other networks. When I'm at home, I've got a Netgear wireless router connected to a Motorola cable modem. I have no problems with internet access, when I have an ethernet cable plugged into my laptop from the router. However, when I try to use the wireless, I get prompted to enter my passphrase, but fails to connect. I have reinstalled the router software, and updated the firmware, and tried different security/no encryption, but I still can't connect to the internet using wireless. I know it's worked previously, but I can't remember what's changed.

    Thanks for your reply. I can confirm that there's no static ip address assigned to my computer. There's no error message as such. When I try to connect to the internet using wireless, it says that it's connecting, but never does. I have tried using different types of authentication, but it still doesn't connect.

Check the ip configuration settings of your wireless computer...make sure that there is no static ip address assigned in your computer... Also check for any duplicate ip address in the wireless configuration... Also tel me what is the exact error message you are getting when you are trying to connect to your network...

    On the far hand side left you will have an option called "Manage wireless networks" If you click that, you will see the list of preferred networks that are already saved in your computer... Now select your network, make a right click and select "Remove network" Select "ok" for all the warnings...
    Thats it..! you are done..! Now search for the list of available wireless networks in range, you must be able to see your network name without any error mesages... Select your network and click connect, it will ask for the network key(if you have setup one)... Enter the key and get connected...! You must be able to go online now..!

Windows 7 SP won't install on my Lenovo x64 z565 laptop. I've been trying without success for over a year now.


I'd check with lenovo to see if they had a known problem/solution. Do you have the minimum hardware M'soft recommends? You need to post some details on what happens in your install procedure. You'd get better answers on the lenovo and microsoft sites, IMO

I have just purchased a Dell laptop with Windows 7 home premium installed. I have a Cannon PIXMA MP495 printer, what do I need to do to operate thist printer wirelessly?


If you have a wireless router with a wireless network then -

Configure the IP address your wireless printer, (this is done through the printer's menu settings) make sure it matches the IP address range on your wireless network, it maybe 192.168.1.*** then configure the wireless printer with a fixed IP address with the same IP address range but at a higher address eg. 192.168.1.10 so it does not clash with any other IP addresses.
Next install the printer driver normally.
Then configure the printer Properties.
Click Start - Printers and faxes - right click on the your printer - click Properties - Port tab - click Add Port - Standard TCP/IP port -
Port Name eg. 192.168.1.10
Printer name eg Network printer
Click OK
Then do a TEST print if it does not work then the IP address is probably incorrect.

My lenovo keeps on disconnecting for the internet


Troubleshooting your wireless connection via your Lenovo computer is not a task that requires familiarity with wireless networks or a vast level of computer troubleshooting knowledge.


You can repair Lenovo wireless problems ranging from browser setting errors to hardware connection issues and the only item you will need on hand is the owner's manual that was shipped with your router.


You will not require any additional devices or tools and should not have to resort to the expensive aid of a technician.


Launch the web browser you normally operate and check the "Work Offline" settings.

Click on the top toolbar where it says "File" and scroll down to where it says "Work Offline."


Ensure this selection is not checked, otherwise it will impede the operation of your wireless connection.

Click on this option to uncheck it.


Look over the connection made between your modem and wireless router.

Both devices have an Ethernet port on the rear.


It looks like an oversized telephone cord port. If these ports are not occupied by an Ethernet cable, connect one end of the cable to each device.

This connection cannot be loose.


Check your records for the password to your Lenovo wireless setup if you have a secured connection.

(A secured connection is recommended).

If you cannot find your password in your records, you will need to reset it.


Find the manual that shipped with your router and extract two important pieces of information. The first is the special web address the manufacturer provided for you to set up your router's settings; the second is the default password for your router.


Enter the web address from the manual into the web browser and click "Enter."

When prompted, input the default password from the wireless router.


Choose a new password for your wireless connection now that you have access to the settings.

Additionally, ensure the kind of wireless security you are using is "WPA." "WEP" is another available option, but it is an older encryption type and is technically inferior.


Click on the wireless network icon on the right side of the bottom toolbar in Windows on your Lenovo computer.

A list of wireless networks within range of your Lenovo computer will appear.


Click on the name of your wireless network and input your new password when prompted.

Look to the bottom right of your Windows desktop.


You should get a notification stating that you have successfully joined the network.


Hope this helps

You method is used to remove the BIOS password, not Windows log on screen password.

You can create a Windows password reset bootable CD/DVD or USB flash drive to reset forgotten Windows password, i have created a bootable USB flash drive with the tool Windows Password Breaker and reset my administrator password successfully. You can have a try.

Forgot password to log on for my wireless connection trying to add my Wii and now cant even get my laptop back online


You can check the passphrase when you access the router page:
  • Open a Web browser and type http://gateway.2wire.net or http://192.168.1.254; the 2Wire Home page opens.
  • Click the Home Networking tab at the top of the 2Wire Home page.
  • Click on Wireless Settings. then click EDIT SETTINGS located on the right panel.
  • Here you will be able to fine the setting for your wireless connection
  • You can change the SSID, Wireless Channel, Wireless Security, and Network Key
  • If the Wireless Security Key uses the default, the Passphrase is the 10 digits located underneath the router under the S/N.
Thanks for using Fixya.
